Motherwell V Hibs - 2021/22 League Grand Kick Off

Recommended Posts

What's the thoughts then to get the league campaign started? A few comments around regarding the League Cup group stages but I'm very much in the camp of not reading too much into that. Talk of a couple more in before the weekend but for these boys to start could be a big ask.

I'm going with a 1-1 draw. A fairly defensive affair on both sides with us coming back from a goal down. Can't see either manager being too crafty just yet, could be one or two properly competitive fixtures before we see the Motherwell team hit any kind of form/pattern imo.

 

Hoping for a couple of tickets on the general sale when it is announced.

2 ‐ 1 to the good guys. Van Veen and Lamie.

I can’t see us getting anything from this one as the season just seems to have come too early for us, especially going by GA’s comments last week about having too much work/too many games etc. The only leveller perhaps will be Hibs playing in Europe on Thursday night but I still expect them to take the points.

2-1 away win.

Apart from injuries I think the team will pick itself apart from the left wing back, personally I would go for Carroll 

Kelly

O’Donnell, Mugabe, Lamie,Carroll

Slattery, Donnelly, McGuire

Watt, Van Veen & Woolery

Is Mugabe fit?

Like UBH, I'd be very happy to take anything from this fixture.

According to his interview on SKY he is fit

He mentioned that tomorrow is his first day of full training with the team, so guessing he's a couple of weeks out. Maybe a place on the bench on Sunday?

Given how lackluster our pre-season/cup run has been, I predict we'll hammer hibs.

Cheers. Hope his recovery and return to first team action goes well, whenever that may be.

I have it in my head that draws are really common on opening day so I'll go with that. 

1-1 in a fairly drab affair. 

If the Finnish CB comes in today then I could see him starting besides Lamie, Maguire, Donnelly and Slattery in the middle and the standard front three we've seen a lot so far this year.

A tough opening fixture, from which we'll do well to take anything. Its come perhaps 3 weeks too early for us. Is Slattery up for start? Maybe just too early for him - will he get 30 minutes?

Not sure if big Mugabi is going to be fit or not. But I’d take a snoozefest 1-0 win for the Well. Like GB, I like the look of Slattery. I can see him nicking the winner. #SIWY

I think Slattery has been training with us for a while now so he should be reasonably fit, maybe not 90 mins match fit, but I can see him starting.

I certainly hope so Allan. Even this early he would add something to our engine room.

Fair enough I assumed he might have been one of the players that had been training with us for a few weeks while we evaluated them.

Not been keeping up to date on things but is O’Conner injured as no one has selected him to start

I think thats more to do with posters assuming that Bevis Mugabe is fit, which I presume he isn't.

Yeah unless someone else comes in then I think the one person that matters will select him to start.
